These panini press you have hiding in your kitchen cabinets are not just for making a panini sandwiches, they are an amazing tool to use as a grill, last night I used it to grill vegetables and I often use it to grill steaks or chicken.
Last night dinner, grilled vegetables and slow cooker chicken…
I am having an unlimited vegetables and protein for the next 14 days of detox to lose a few pounds!
Healthy and delicious grilled vegetables in ten minuets.
Here is how i made them…
1 extra large zucchini
1 extra large squash
2 large orange sweet bell pepper or any color you have on hands
Healthy cooking spray
Preheat the panini grill.
Cut up the squash and zucchini to round slices, about two inches thick each.
Cut the bell pepper to big chunks, I used orange bell pepper I think orange, yellow or red ones are sweeter than the green.
Spray the panini grill with cooking spray and line the vegetables side by side, sprinkles with salt and pepper.
Close the lid and grill for 1-2 minuets, I like my vegetables to have a bite to them.
Some of these panini machines have a cold and hot spots, If needed flip the vegetables to reach your desired doneness.
Grilling the vegetables longer than 1-2 minuets will turn them in to a mushy mess!
Serve with steak or chicken or any protein you like, I served it with my delicious Fiesta chicken but I did not add the sauce on my chicken this time.
